Hunting scene showing Killruddery House
The Orangery dates from 1852. It was built by William Burn for the 11th Earl of Meath and his wife Harriot, after the Crystal Place Exhibition in London, when conservatories became very fashionable. The dowager duchess Melosina sold her diamond tiara to pay for the build. The pattern of the brickwork is said to be based on the design of the tiara. The original glass roof, the work of Richard Turner, has since been replaced. Inside is a collection of marble statues from Italy collected 1830–1850.
